NYX The "IT" List Natural Lip Gloss Set :)

Hello my beauties I hope you are all well :) 
I have two questions for you!  1.  Are you a huge fan of NYX Cosmetics like I am?  and 2.  Are you a fan of natural lip colours?  Well this blog post is going to interest you big time.  
I was shopping around on the Cherry Culture website in January when they had the 50% off and I bought alot of nyx product including this lovely set 
NYX Cosmetics decided to put together  a combination of our best-selling lip gloss formulas in natural hues.  They put together a variety of textures and colours from sheer to dramatic for any look at any time :) 
Well I am a huge fan of Nyx lip products.  So far I have tried The Mega Shine Lip Glosses which I absolutely love love love and highly recommend I did a blog post on them about 2 years ago and still to this day use them :) :) 
I have also tried their Soft Matte Lip Creams which again I love and still use alot :)  Check out the shades I have here .  I have also tried their Xtreme Lip creams and Matte Lipsticks which are too in my love box :) 
So I was super excited to try some of their other lip products that I havent tried and I think the Idea of this set is great because it gives you the opportunity to find out which ones you like and prefer 

This set costs $20 altogether which is brilliant on its own because if you were to buy all 5 lip products on their own you would pay $28 altogether :)  But there is even better news :) :) Cherry culture are currently having a 40% off sale on everything on the site which means if you buy this set you are getting it for $12 even better !!!  I am currently trying to avoid that site because I know I will end up buying and I am on a ban for this week anyway but the sale ends on the 9th of this month :) :)  

So lets get started on the glosses :) :) 

Nyx Butter Gloss in Creme Brulee:  I have been wanting to try these butter glosses since they were released as I heard so many great things about them.  This Butter gloss is a sheer soft pink shade.  It is quick thick and feels very smooth on the lips.  This sort of reminds me of the Mega shine lip glosses.  The lasting power is about 2 hours before you feel a need to top up.  The sponge tip application is perfect which means you can apply anywhere even without a mirror.  It does feel a little sticky but nothing extreme I have actually been using this alot since i got it as its a perfect shade for smokey eye or everyday wear.  It looks beautiful in photos too :)  I love using this over any natural pink lipstick it really jazzes up the look 

Next up is :) 

Nyx Mega Shine Lip Gloss in Perfect:  Ah well I just love this gloss too much If you have not tried Mega Shine you have to try at least one and I guarantee you too will love them.  They feel amazing and look amazing and with 48 shades to choose from you will surely find your shade.  "Perfect" is a very sheer pink gloss with sparkles but not the type of sparkle that you can feel on your lips or that you are left with when the gloss wears off but the type of sparkle that will make your lips look plump.  Ok This shade may not be a favourite of mine but for a younger generation its perfect :)  My 12 year old daughter has already got her eye on this to wear to her confirmation this weekend :) 
Next Up is: 

Nyx Pump It Up Lip Plumper in shade Kim:  This I am less excited about to be honest I to be honest dont believe "Lip Plumper" lip glosses really work and in all honest I think any shiny gloss can make you lips look fuller and more attractive.  I found this gloss was very light in constancy and lasted only about an hour before it wore off.  The shade on the other hand is nice a natural a light peachy shade.  It would be perfect for everyday wear or with a smokey eye but would be a pain to reapply every hour or so.  

Next up is something I have already reviewed but will include in this review :) 

Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream in Antwerp:  I am in love with these Soft Matte Lip Creams and absolutely adore this shade.  This is a beautiful pinky coral shade and is a perfect spring/summer shade and boy is this pigmented.  It feels smooth and soft on the lips and when dry on the lips still feels extremely comfortable and non drying.  Its lasts alot longer than a gloss and smells like vanilla love it :) 

and lastly 
Nyx Xtreme Shine Lip Cream in Natural:  This is said to be a lipstick, lipgloss and lipliner all in one package.  I have to admit this is less pigmented than a lipstick more pigmented than and gloss and surely doesnt act like a lipliner but if you are one who likes to add a little gloss on top of your lipstick this is surely something you have to try.  This pale pinky beige shade is perfect for the smokey eye looks and also for during the day.  Dont be fooled by the pigmentation of this lip cream as this is the lightest shade there are more intense shades and some fantastic shades to choose from I have 3 other shades if you want to take a look and they are fab :) 
Here is a swatch of all the glosses together :) 

Overall I think Nyx did well with putting together this set.  It gives you an idea of how these glosses work and lets you play around with your more neutral lip looks.  Not only that but if you are new to the Nyx lip products you have a chance to try out 5 different lip products without breaking the bank even though the prices of each one of them is affordable enough your are practically getting one of these free when you buy the set.  
In this photo I am wearing the Butter Gloss in Creme Brulee

I forgot to mention at the beginning if you are not totally into the natural look there is also another set Which is called "The Pinks".  The Pinks as you can guess contain a mixture of pinks and are more intense shades 
So that's my thoughts on the Nyx "it" List Natural Lip Gloss Set.  Have you tried this yet?  Have you tried any of the lip products in this set?  What's your thoughts on them :) 
I hope you enjoyed this review 
Until Next Time 
Lots of Love Luck and Laughter 

I love love love hearing from you all :) I make it my duty to read each and every one of you comments and every time i get a comment from you it highlights my day thanks so so much to you all xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Hi! I was just looking at these sets yesterday. (Because of the 40% off sale at Cherry Culture - lol) I think the pinks are more my taste but the nudes look beautiful on you!! :)

I snagged this set at my local Ulta, and was impressed! I hadn't tried any lip products from Nyx before, and the Soft Matte especially really won me over. This set was definitely worth the plunge, it was $20 well spent.
